Invitation to Gala2019

St. Martin’s 2019 Gala is coming up on Saturday, May 18, 2019! Proceeds from the Gala help St. Martin’s School to continue providing children with the best education possible in an environment which nurtures both hearts and minds. We are hoping you will be able to help us in one or more of the following ways.

Come to the Gala!

It is a wonderful time for parents, family members, parishioners, alumni, and friends to get together for an evening of fun, food, casino style entertainment, and dancing under the stars on the beautiful patio at St. Martin’s. The cost is $60 per person. If you haven’t received an invitation in the mail and would like one, please email us at or call the school office at 818-340-5144.
